I was looking over the onerror bits in
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html , and noticed that the
sections #event-handler-attributes (6.1.6.1) and #runtime-script-errors
(6.1.3.5) seem to differ:

#event-handler-attributes

* 1st argument is "event"
* 3rd argument is "fileno"

#runtime-script-errors

* 1st argument is a DOMString message
* 3rd argument is a line number

I assume the intention is that the 3rd argument should be a line number and
not "file number" (fileno).  But should it be a DOMString?  Why not a number
type?

For the first argument, calling the argument an "event" (in
#event-handler-attributes)
would kinda indicate to me that it's an event object, not a message.

Perhaps these two sections are talking about different things, which would
be even more confusing, since "onerror" seems to be a bit of a weird beast
in any case.
